Thumb Cincinnati to Cherokee, NC and back

Been a while since I've been on ADVRider. I have since acquired an 07 XL883L and have been trying to put some miles on it and the TW.

Well this past weekend my family and I went camping with some friends in Cherokee, NC. The wives took the kids and the campers and the guys rode their bikes. I was on the Sporty and Charlie and Rick were on BMW R 80 RT's.

We left Cincinnati around 6pm on Friday and finally arrived and got camp setup at the KOA in Cherokee around 3am Saturday morning. The ride down was around 360 miles. Charlie, Rick and I got up and headed out for Tail of the Dragon. The campground was about 60 miles away from the Dragon. We did the Dragon out and back and total mileage for the day was around 150 miles. Sunday we took a trip out to Maggie's Valley to see the Wheels Through Time Museum. That added about another 50 miles. Sunday was the ride home. We rode home taking the Tail of the Dragon and sent the family the other way and ended up linking up at the rest area just inside Kentucky (the girls got stuck in traffic!).

Total mileage for the weekend was 941.9 miles.

I'll try to get some pics posted over the next week.

TrashCan...thanks. Had a good time riding. Not sure that I'm going to keep the Sportster though, it did okay, but I think something with a little more room would be nice. Something that is a little better in the corners would be nice too!
